Pink or need

While playing something pricked her foot, she didn't pay much heed to it so we didn't make any fuss either but when she was leaving I notice that her feet were bare, I asked her where were her slippers, she told me those were torn so I asked her to borrow my new bellies, she refused but I insisted.

I was afraid what to i'll tell my mother, we used to take our shoes before entering the home and put them in shoe-rack so I just ran in my room and did not mention that incident to my mother.
Next day when Seema returned my bellies, she was again barefoot so I asked her to keep them.

Then when I returned home I told my mother about it before she starts asking question.
When I completed explaining she just stood there and looked me for a whole minute. I was scared because I literally blackmailed them into buying those bellies.
My mother told me that I did the right thing and she was indeed proud that I told her the truth. She knew Seema and knew how poor her family is so she war rather proud of me that day but she also told me that I should judge before making decisions. I promise that I would always remember that.

Next day my Mother took me to the market and bought me the same pink bellies. Now Seema and I used to play Langdi wearing the same bellies and seeing her happy made me happy.

A Great Drive - entry for Michelin Pilot Experience by Suhani

I went to Rameshwaram from Bangalore after few years of Tsunami. That was one of the most nostalgic trip I ever made and most memorable as well.

I made this trip to witness the dreadful condition after Tsunami.

This is the road to Ram Setu in Rameshwaran, this road used to be brimming with fishermen, their small cottages but now it's barren.
This road squeezed my heart, I absolutely can not comprehend what they must have gone through.
 I do hope every one stay happy and safe.
And the sea stay calm.

I Saw, I Learnt

I used to be an extremely fussy kid, Specially with what I eat. I used to hate vegetables during my childhood, I remember sneaking the salad and sabji off my plate and throw it from balcony or in dustbin. Most of the time my mother used catch me and scold me but I hardly learnt. And I used to always leave something on my plate, never finish it. On day when we were travelling via. train, I saw many hungry kids of my age on railway station. Then again on train I saw a little girl of my age picking 'Chanas' from the train floor that I spilled earlier. I tried to stop her but she told me she was hungry, haven't ate anything in days. That scene changed something in me. I was really upset with myself, I saw the reality of this world and never again wasted even a single bite. If I had too much food, I'd give it away to my maid or any poor person on street but I never waste food. It is my request to you as well. Don't ever waste food. There are many hungry bellies out there. You can always fill them with your extra bit of piece.

Top 5 quotes on 'HOPE'

1.     “Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
Emily Dickinson
2.     “The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”
 ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
3.     Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'...”
Alfred Tennyson
4.     “to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you've held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?
Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again.”
Ellen Bass
5.     “When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.”
Pittacus Lore, I Am Number Four
